About the program
The Satellite Hospitals Program (SHP) is a $280 million Queensland Government commitment to deliver seven new facilities to support public healthcare delivery in rapidly growing communities across South East Queensland.
The locations for the new Satellite Hospitals are Redland, Caboolture, Kallangur (Pine Rivers), Tugun (Gold Coast), Ripley (Ipswich), Bribie Island and Eight Mile Plains (Brisbane South).
All seven sites have been chosen to provide better access to healthcare for local communities, in convenient settings, without having to travel to major hospitals for care.
They will offer a range of services based on the health needs of the community and incorporate outpatient community-based healthcare services with virtual healthcare opportunities.
Each Satellite Hospital will offer simple day-therapy services such as complex wound management and care for minor injuries and illnesses.
Preferred sites have been identified for Bribie Island and Ripley with preliminary feedback currently being sought. Find out more.
